Who doesn’t like comfort? And nothing says comfort like things that turn on exactly when and where you need them. A ‘smart home’ comes with modern devices that enable automation of tasks and allow remote access. These cutting-edge homes can be built into a new building or added later and controlled by apps, remotes, switches, voice commands, or artificial intelligence. While the list is constantly growing, the most common types of smart appliances on the market are an amalgamation of 5G, AI and IoT, and here're all the changes you can embrace.
Live in intelligent homes in the 5G era
Have you ever been in a situation in which a matter of seconds can make all the difference? For instance, the alarm needs to trigger immediately when there’s a danger or a child monitoring device has to give feedback in real-time. Low latency 5G connectivity is the lifeline of smart homes that minimises the response time of connected devices. Now the smart speaker in your smart home will be more responsive and your home security will be more reactive. Therefore, a smart home isn’t just about convenience; it’s about your security and peace of mind.
Save energy, save money
The driving force behind building a smart home is not its latest features. However, it is solely driven by its potential to save energy. Smart thermostats like Ecobee and Nest have features like pre-cooling or pre-heating ahead of schedule or scaling back power when no one’s home. Other smart products, such as lights, plugs, and appliances, can be set to shut off when not in use, thus improving efficiency, reducing power wastage and saving money.
Emerging new species of home appliances
From the Google Home Mini to the Amazon Alexa System, a new species of electronic appliances is already gaining popularity. While you can do many of these activities via app and voice control, things really kick into high gear with automation, which can be set to trigger as per sensor data, your location, linked devices, or the time of day. After all, it is nice having lights that wake you up in the morning and automatically turn back on again before sunset.
Breaking down barriers between smart appliances
In the past, smart homes used multiple communication protocols like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, which worked in silos, thereby making it impossible for devices to interact with those on another network. Thus, creating an integrated smart home experience was a far-fetched dream. With 5G, any device can be directly connected to the network, which facilitates interconnection and interaction with other devices, thus making it easier to create a smart home ecosystem.
Entering the new era of interconnected future will be an impossibility without seamless network. High-speed 5G connectivity is not only set to redefine the way your home works but also ensures that you enjoy nothing short of ground-breaking 5G coverage for the whole house. With Jio’s constant initiatives to make smart living a possibility, it is only a matter of time before a holistic, smart, connected home lifestyle experience becomes a reality in every home.
